Dissemination of research results

The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics publishes regularly articles to various media (newspapers, TV, online media) with results from the department in connection with the publication of some of the staff's scientific articles.

In connection with their PhD defence, the students make a popular description of their research for the media.

In addition, several researchers actively participate in debates in the media and produce science articles and books.

Survey of knowledge on how to combat microorganisms

A comprehensive knowledge of the synthesis of organisms and the utilisation of the compound PRPP may be useful in efforts to develop methods for combating microorganisms that can infect humans and other mammals. An international research team has now made a complete list of results in the field.

For several years, researchers at Aarhus University have studied the molecular mechanisms that enable bacteria to hide in this way, and new research now suggests that they also make use of code language in their attempt to avoid being controlled. Figure: Ditlev E. Brodersen.
Kirstine Louise Bendtsen, MSc, and PhD student Kehan Xu have carried out the published work.

Researchers reveal the secret code language of bacteria

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is a growing global challenge. Danish researchers have now discovered that bacteria use a code language to avoid being controlled. Understanding this code language will be paramount to developing new antibiotics in the future.
